Senior Army leaders will participate in a special series, co-hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army, that examines how the COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping the way the military builds and modernizes the force to fulfill its mission. 

“NatSec 2020: Coronavirus & Beyond” will air July 13–17. Every day that week, beginning at 1 p.m., senior leaders from across DoD will discuss how the pandemic will impact the four specialty areas that drive the business of government: personnel, acquisition, financial management and information technology. They also will discuss how the national security community will fulfill its mission differently in a post-COVID-19 world.

The series is hosted by Government Matters, the Navy League of the United States and AUSA. The one-hour programs will air on WJLA 24/7 News and be available online via webinar provider FedInsider.

The episode on the Army airs July 16, and it will feature Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville and Bruce Jette, assistant secretary of the Army for acquisition, logistics and technology. Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford, the Army’s chief information officer, and Brig. Gen. Douglas Stitt, director of military personnel management, also are scheduled to appear.

The leaders will discuss the topic at hand as well as the pandemic’s impact on the Army’s six modernization priorities and force structure. 

The episode also will feature retired Gen. Carter Ham, AUSA president and CEO.
